Falling objects can kill: Secure your tools

Construction accidents don't have to happen in most cases. Many incidents that happen are a result of mistakes, a lack of preparation or simply not following safety rules on the job. Employers may try to take shortcuts to save money, too.

Of the construction accidents that can happen, one common type is when a worker is hit by a falling object. This can happen in a variety of instances. For example, if one worker is installing an outdoor window on the second floor and drops a drill, that drill could fall and strike someone who is working below.

How do you get the right attorney for your case?

No matter what kind of case you have, it is essential that you're working with the right attorney. By working with an attorney who is familiar with the laws that affect your case, the court and the legal process, you can give yourself the best chance of getting compensation.

Choosing the best attorney isn't always easy. In fact, many supposed law firms actually just refer you to other attorneys who aren't with them. So, how can you protect your interests? Here are five tips for choosing a great attorney.

Why are deadly truck accidents still so common?

U.S. drivers face many hazards on the road – often from other drivers. But consistently, one of the biggest dangers we face is sharing the road with large trucks. In California and across the United States, semi-trucks dominate our highways and endanger the lives of occupants in smaller vehicles.

Statistics show that in 2017, there were 4,237 truck accidents on U.S. roads, resulting in almost 4,800 deaths. Most of these crashes are preventable, yet trends continue despite decades-long efforts to improve safety in the trucking industry.

Studies show that e-scooters pose a significant brain injury risk

Six weeks ago, several cities in Los Angeles County launched a one-year Dockless Mobility Program. It allows different companies including Uber, Bird, Lyft and Lime to make electric scooters and bikes more accessible to city residents. The cities launched this program in an effort to gain a better perspective on the use of these vehicles and the safety risks that they pose.

The Los Angeles Department of Transportation has recorded one million uses of e-bikes and scooters since the program went into effect a month ago. During the first nine days after its launch on April 25, there 1,200 calls reported calls regarding scooters that came into the city's 311 service request system.
